Award Obtained by Goodell DeVries Attorneys in an International AAA Arbitration

January 2015

Goodell DeVries attorneys Linda S. Woolf and Matthew D. Kohel obtained an award on behalf of a manufacturer of water quality and flow measurement instruments in an international AAA arbitration.  Both parties alleged that the other side committed various breaches of a distribution agreement governing the sale of products in Europe.  At the arbitration hearing, where the evidence included testimony from American and European witnesses, Ms. Woolf and Mr. Kohel demonstrated that the respondent breached the contact and obtained a monetary award for our client.  In addition, the arbitrator found in favor of our client on two of the respondent’s three counterclaims, and for the one claim in which respondent prevailed, the evidence presented by the Goodell DeVries team showed that its claimed damages were speculative and, therefore there could be no recovery on that claim.
